I felt every drop of sweat make its way down my face, neck and back as I stared down the rattlesnake, its beady eyes locked with mine, daring me to move. A few miles into my solo-backpacking trip through Oregon’s remote desert, I considered turning around and heading the several miles back to my car. After I caught my breath, I shook off the idea. Testing myself, I thought, is why I was here.Travel Oregon had released an elaborate, animated advertisement featuring lush rivers, snow-peaked mountains, miles of vineyards and coastline, and breathtaking Crater Lake. I couldn’t help thinking: false advertising.Though Oregon often is depicted in terms of Douglas fir-filled forests, half the state is a water-starved desert. Although I knew the desert was here, I never had explored it. Then I learned of the Oregon Desert Trail, a 750-mile, W-shaped path that weaves through the state’s most arid landscape. It shows off some of the state’s unsung attractions, including … [Read more...] about Oregon Desert Trail is just that, complete with canyons and rattlesnakes

In early June I took my rescued dog Rosa on holiday for the first time, well not in this country anyway! After initially being a little apprehensive about how everything was going to work out (will I get all the documents needed in time, could she potentially overheat on the ferry crossing, will we run out of gravy bones, the list goes on..), but after a bit of preparation the 10-day driving trip to France worked out amazingly. In fact it went even better than that, the famously laid-back lifestyle in France worked its magic on my otherwise slightly over excitable dog, the sun shone, the vineyards glistened, the dog friendly hotels were extremely welcoming to both of us and we both found it hard to prise ourselves away from the truly beautiful country. Although when researching for the trip I found that although here in the UK we’re most definitely a nation of dog lovers (with a quarter of British households now owning dogs), only 5% of these households take advantage of the … [Read more...] about How to travel to Europe with a dog – a complete guide!
Thu Hang speaks confidently about the upcoming soccer match of the day. Then she turns to the real star of the show, Molly the seal, to predict its outcome. Molly the seal is an old hand at this. She looks at the three baskets placed in front of her. The one in the middle has a white flag and the flanking baskets carry the flags of the teams playing the match. Using her divining power, the seal seals the deal by throwing a ball into one of the three baskets. The “Russian Prophet” show, aired on pay TV channel K+ Sports News, has attracted many viewers. The sexy host is one of the attractions of the show, because she wears a bikini and a see-through white cloth that accentuates her curves. However, it was not long before the skimpy nature of Hang’s outfit became controversial. The show is streamed live on the TV channel's Facebook page, and posts with Hang wearing bikinis last week received much more interactions than those with her in normal coach outfits. Views for … [Read more...] about Football fans divided as MC in bikini ‘seals’ World Cup spot in Vietnam
Phoebe Wall Howard Detroit Free Press Published 2:47 p.m. UTC Jun 1, 2018 A review of legal documents filed in recent weeks indicates that Ford Motor Co. has consummated months of intense negotiations with the Moroun family and has purchased the Michigan Central Station, according to a property law expert who specializes in such deals. Something could still go wrong, but "this is a very exciting moment,” said David Findling, a Royal Oak lawyer who has handled real estate transfers for 30 years. “In all likelihood, we can say to ourselves that Ford is moving into Corktown in a big way," he said. "This isn’t hypothetical anymore. This isn’t speculative. Ford is doing it. This is going to happen.” Documents filed with the Wayne County Register of Deeds in May confirm that ownership of the long-vacant train station changed from the Moroun-affiliated MCS Crown Land Development Co. LLC to New Investment Properties I LLC, which lists as its address … [Read more...] about Property law expert: Ford deal for Detroit train depot seems complete
